National Greenhouse Inventory System
Greenhouse gases (GHGs) trap the sun’s heat, making life possible. Yet the world’s growing demand for energy, food, and materials has caused too many GHGs to be released into the atmosphere. As a result, we are experiencing dramatic changes in climatic patterns and an increase in global temperatures. This has major and wide-ranging impacts on meteorological, agricultural, ecological and socioeconomic systems across the world.
